Politics prevail over the people once again thanks to the Obama administration. To say that Healthcare.gov has fallen short of its targeted number of “enrollees” (500,000) would be a gross understatement. What’s the count to-date, you ask... less than 50,000 people. But this number doesn’t matter to the Obama administration because it doesn’t care about the true number of successful enrollments; instead, their number, set to be released this week, counts those people who have merely registered on the site and entered basic contact information. One would think you’d have to actually enroll to be counted as an enrollee, but since when have political games ever been rational…
Some members of the GOP establishment, however, are more than willing to throw President Obama a lifeline as we found out later on the show when Laura was joined by Congressman Adam Kinzinger (R-IL). Despite all of the bad faith and lies we've seen from this administration, Kinzinger still believes that we can trust the Senate and Obama to go to conference on immigration reform, and uphold whatever laws are passed. Unwilling to allow the Congressman to sidestep the important issues, Laura called the Congressman out on his relative youth and lack of experience.
Former Gov. of Alaska, Sarah Palin, who joined the show later, similarly stood up against members of the GOP establishment. Palin slammed establishment member and former running mate, Sen. John McCain, who recently referred to Tea Partiers as “hobbits” who are “waging a war on Middle Earth.” Palin retorted that she’s, “proud to be a hobbit” and continued on to say that if people in the GOP establishment continue to admonish Tea Partiers, they’ll find themselves “going the way of the Whig Party.”
